Internships are an excellent way to focus your career ideas, whilst also enabling you to apply the knowledge gained from your studies or interests, develop your professional network and enhance your employability.
At King’s we equip students to action their own meaningful work through a variety of online tools, networks and events, alongside our own curated co-curricular programmes, which are available to a range of students - from work shadowing to summer internships across a range of industries, and specific support for under-represented groups.
Increasing numbers of students also have the option to gain academic credit through the completion of an internship as part of an accredited internship module within their programme, this is supported by dedicated Internship Convenors in your department and our Accredited Internships Programme.
